TASCHEN TO RELEASE $1000 6-Book Collection of R. Crumb Sketchbooks From 1981-2012
The good folks behind my collection of vintage pornography and Tom of Finland art books are getting ready to release a collection of sketchbooks by R. Crumb, featuring his work over the last thirty years (Crumb wanted his more current work published first followed by a collection of his older sketchbooks).
Priced at $1000 for a 6-volume set, this is certainly something that only a die-hard fan would seriously consider, but seeing that I have probably spent more than that for several complete Sweet Valley High sets (including all the Super Editions, Super Thrillers, Super Stars and Manga Editions) I am all for dropping a wad for something so super awesome.
Now, if $1000 hurts your butthole a bit too much, there's a plethora of other, more affordable R.Crumb books available on Amazon (including the R.Crumb Sketchbook set which will be around $200 cheaper and will drop on October 1st) that can soothe your ass pain like a pad slathered in Preparation H.
Either way, it's all good.
